God of Justice, Saviour to all
Came to rescue the weak and the poor
Chose to serve and not be served

Jesus, You have called us
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give

We must go live to feed the hungry
Stand beside the broken
We must go
Stepping forward keep us from just singing
Move us into action
We must go

To act justly everyday
Loving mercy in every way
Walking humbly before You God

You have shown us, what You require
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give

Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out Lord

Spice Girls hit the stage in Vancouver on Dec 2nd.


wow. i am completely tuckered out.
tomorrow is my last shift in my set of 5, and i dont know how i'm going to deal with full time. I have never been this tired in my life. I can't go to sleep because my stepdad is having a party and theres people everywhere. I was babysitting until about 1am, and i have church at 9, then i work at 1pm until 5..and when i get home, i am instituting a lazy day for sunday after 6pm until the end of monday. if you would like to see me on monday, you have to be wearing pj's and i require an entrance fee of a tasty snack that can be shared by the both of us.
thank-you and goodnight.

( yay or nay?)


Starting work at 8am sucks.
I really liked the warehouse though. not having to deal with customers getting mad at me constantly. PLUS i get to see all the stuff before it goes out on the floor, which is pretty sweet i must say. I think ill work in the back when i start full time because the ladies back there are really nice. After work Shawn-H picked me up from work and we headed over to his house to babysit his kids. The night started with a lengthy conversation with Katie(2yrs old) about boats, balloons popping, and airplanes. She turned her mcdonalds cheeseburger into paste, (she only ate the pickles and the cheese). Emma(4yrs old) had swimming lessons, so while she was gone...caitlyn, katie and i played endless games of "ring around the rosie" and "squishing up my baby bumblebee". The night went as usual, emma making up games, and katie talking constant nonsense...but i would have to say the best moment of the night was when molly walked straight into the screen door. dazed and confused, molly looks around and realizes what she has done...and attempts to put the door back on. wow. I was laughing so hard i cried. We hung out with Shawn and Krista for a bit, and then Shawn drove us home. I called Colin and we talked for a little while. (we're totally BFF, by the way) i love him long time.
I have to work in 9 1/2 hours, so i should be heading to bed now

lol@caitlyns house

so last night and tonight were pretty fun filled.
Last night, it seemed like Caitlyn had taken all of the pills in her medicine cabinet, because she was acting like a complete psycho. The night was filled with comments like "no you're the walrus, no you're the war college" and then Caitlyn sitting there with a chair on her saying "look guys! the chair is sitting on ME". Then this morning we woke up and i took a million shifts at work, so at 8am tomorrow ill be processing shoes in the winners warehouse (yay!) Today was officially marked a lazy day.My mom called me and now apparently my name is "Carlye Spence". Michelle came home from camp and we made a fancy dinner of alfredo noodles and salad a la Caitlyn and Carlye. The we proceeded to karen travers' house where we played wii for about 2 and half hours, (i pwn at wii baseball by the way). Michelle ended up hitting the t.v with the wii controller and im pretty sure that i ate wayy too many baby carrots.
so im sitting here, i work in about 8 hours. and im totally not looking forward to it
but whatever.

so, the opportunity to go to school in Australia has been given to me.
and i really would like to do it... and i found this amazing college that I'm really interested in.
its pretty sweet, and really accommodating for international students. I would probably be taking the Human Behavior, or the Nursing Course. Im just really stoked, and i really hope this happens..because Australia is pretty sweet.

good times.

lisa is FINALLY HERE, and i cant even explain how stoked i am.
and were not even doing stuff, we're just hanging out and its perfect.
I had a whole bunch of plans for us this weekend, but it just seems like its turned out better this way. Fireworks are tonight, and i wish a couple people were here, but i can deal with it i guess.
Im just totally excited that lisa is here
i love her alot.

so today has been pretty tiring so far.
woke up and got ready... went to the mall and bought some stuff
4 hours later me and molly just wanted to go home...
a day filled with stinky buses and mall goths.
im sooo excited
but the weather here for bathtub weekend completely sucks, but were still going to have a blast.
basically i love life right now.

Holy Fire.

God, i just pray that you send your holy fire over camp sunrise, father.
Guard them with your spirit.
YHWH we pray that your power and love will triumph
Strength, Faith, Power and Wisdom, Lord.
Send your angels by the millions
Lord I pray for healing, for strength father
I pray that you cover these children with your blood, and your protection.
Death cant touch us.
this is your kingdom, and we are your children.
God, give them strength, courage, and unity Lord

Matthew 10:1
He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.


Exodus 23:25

Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you

sometimes clint is funny.

awww, poor clown. Who's laughing now?

nobody because it's not funny
Caitlyn got her tattoo today!

promoted to glory.

I'd like to think that as I'm writing this here blog entry, that Colonel Iris is looking down on me smiling. Colonel Iris is chillin' with Jesus now, or how we say in the Salvation army "promoted to glory". Which i think is a really neat thing to think about, because when someone dies...its easy to focus on the bad things, and the downsides to situations. But just think... she's up there eating finger sandwiches with Jesus, and partying like it's 1999... and I'm sitting down here wondering why i forgot to call her last weekend for coffee. It's funny how much we take the time we have for granted. I would always procrastinate and say i would call her next weekend, and now...i can never have that with her, and i will always regret that.
This woman was phenomenal. One of the few older ladies who wasn't scared to talk to the teenagers on a Sunday morning after the church service. This woman had to most amazing sense of humor, which i will never forget. Her jokes about my ever changing hair, or jokes about the way i dress. She would always notice when i wasn't there for a Sunday and would ask me why. Her smile brought joy to the lives of those who had no joy. This woman had Jesus shining through her like a piece of cellophane, and I'm sure that many people's lives have changed because of her bubbly personality and way of life. The guilt that i have for not having that one coffee date will linger.. but the fact that i will see her again...really makes it all better

July 15th

hmm, new post, new post.
The weather has finally cooled down and I'm not confined to wearing a sheet toga.
I had a sweet night with Caitlyn, Molly and Katelyn the other night.. we slept out on Caitlyn's deck, and some pictures were taken that none of us want to see again... ( but they're all on facebook!)
Stress to find a full time job is closing in on me.
i don't want to be working a full time job where i have to take 2 hours of buses to get there and back. LISA is coming in about 5 days. and i cant believe how stoked i am. Andy mac might come with her, but i doubt it. Bathtub weekend is upon us, and that means piles of cotton candy and TRENDY LEMONADE. Caitlyn gets her tattoo in 2 days.. we went to gt an evaluation, and the guy drew it out and it looks beautiful.
All sorts of people are asking me what im going to do when she's gone. the truth is..i dont know what i am going to do. Having caitlyn not be a phonecall away is going to be so hard to get through. But i guess its only a year and we have the rest of our lives to be bestfriends.

i guess.

wow, last blog entry on march 24th,
so much stuff has happened since then..relationships come and gone
new friends made, new everything.
I have been blessed with amazing new friends this past summer and just these past weeks i have met some truly amazing people. Which sucks, cause they're leaving.
I've just really felt a lot of the stress in my life lifted off my shoulders
and I'm so grateful for the fact that our God is a graceful and merciful God.
Bathtub weekend is coming up soon, and this is the first bathtub weekend where i don't go to my cabin. My grandparents sold it about 2 weeks ago, which is going to be weird.
i'm so stoked about her coming here for bathtub weekend. because she's amazing.
and i love her a lot.
